Experiment shows that the mutation is possible not only in a lab, but also could easily happen in nature.
"The worst-case scenario here is worse than anything you can imagine," one US government advisor told the Independent.
Rotterdam's Erasmus Medical Centre announced in September it was able to create a mutant strain of H5N1 bird flu virus that could be transmitted between mammals, the Independent reports.
The H5N1 virus has a 60 percent death rate amongst humans, one of the deadliest of any flu in human history, but human-to-human transmission has remained rare under the current strain and only 350 people have died.
Can humankind make it? Probably not.
